In brief: Renajel absorption

You can take renajel while pregnant or while you are breast feeding because it is not absorbed from the intestine into your blood stream. It is used to bind phosphorus (p) in the intestine to prevent high p levels from developing in the blood of patients with advanced kidney disease of those on dialysis.
If you are taking it after meals, have a physician check your p level in your blood.

In brief: No

This is a more complicated answer than just yes or no.
I assume you are on dialysis if you are taking this medication. You need to see a high risk doctor before considering pregnancy.
